Creating beautiful rooms has been in vogue since Martha Cavewoman moved her husband’s rock to better view the sunset. HOME is the driving force for mankind…a place where you feel safe, comfortable, where you go to retreat and celebrate. Color is the core of creating a beautiful room…and the part with the most margin for error.

Hi, I’m JoAnne Lenart-Weary, the creator of the Confident Color System. As a 40+ year veteran of the design and staging industry, I have selected colors for tens of thousands of projects, interior and exterior. Along with my 15 Grandchildren, I am always on the look out for new color experiences.

I have trained aspiring and established interior decorators, designers, and home stagers since 1999. The Confident Color System was created to help them (and hopefully you) select color in a practical and systematic approach by approaching both the art and science of the process.

Joining me in helping the world approach color selection without fear, is the talented Sandra Racz. Sandra is an award winning decorator who has built successful companies in Jacksonville, Tampa, Park City, Denver, and Scottsdale. She is also the Executive Director of The Decorating and Staging Academy. We have appeared on HGTV, ABC, as well as write for many industry magazines, speak at almost every industry conference or convention, some even call me an industry icon. Bottom line…I know my stuff and love to share and empower others. Confident Color System is offered in 2 formats, an online blended (combines pre-recorded and real time virtual lessons) or a live 2 day workshop.Over the years I made many color mistakes. There was the time I painted the toliet red..yep, I was creative with color. I have used color to transform everything from flooring, furniture, and rooms. I went from simply having a good eye for color to understanding this color thing was much more than color theory…you simply needed to know the tricks. That is what the Confident Color System is all about. We will turn you in a lean, mean color selecting machine in no time at all.
